Thank you for replying Peter, love the two others you have posted, the only other i found was The George Washington Nailsea flask.

I found a rummer today dated 1801 i wonder if you could have a look at, i will post it in a bit they are hardly ever signed or dated, regards Chris.

Hi , The George Washington flask is attributed to Germany though , not Nailsea. they are often described as such but are quite different when seen.

cheers

Peter.
